I have a strange problem with my laptop keyboard.

the laptop keyboard doesn't work, i've tried it on Seven, Vista and Ubuntu.

I can't however see no reason for it not to work, in device manager it says its connected and working fine, when i uninstall the device, it detects the device and reinstalls, not a keyboard problem as external keyboard works, so i am truly baffled.

suddenly stopped working yesterday, say it confuses me slightly as the O/S is picking up that the keyboard is there, and say it is working properly

then i think ether the keyboard itself or the conection to the mother board is bad. keyboards replacement are not that much. easy to change just put your computer model in google "model keybord replacement"
